Convert 6-channel .WAV file to .OGG issue.


I have some 6-channel .WAV files and used oggenc to convert it to ogg. After this conversion, the 6th channel was corrupted and not audible. I have tried SOX, FFMPEG, all got the same results.

Maybe this is because the encoder assumes that 6 channels means a 5.1 surround audio and creates one Low Frequency Effect (LFE) channel.

How to avoid this? I need a 6-channel ogg file (without a LFE track).
Thanks for your help.

I'm afraid I don't know why this is - I don't really have any experience with surround audio. You are more likely to get an answer asking on the sox or ffmpeg forums.
